Who wants to take a Road Trip in January? TAY does! Right, guys? Yes. Okay!

In this edition of TAY Road Trip the Game, we've safely made it out of the haunted house infested with zombies. It took some while but here we are! With a few close encounters, bites and Raise spells later (eeheehee...Raise spells) and we find ourselves on a red carpet. A what now?

Yes, TAY Road Trippers, you've stumbled into an Award Ceremony. Your Party of You plus Three of your Video Game friends — crap! What happened to the previous group? Got lost in all the dazzling lights of cameras, I guess. Pick some new friends! — are all invited to this ritzy black tie affair and are nominated in various categories.

The rules for Road Trip:

  • It's you and three of your video game character friends. Who in your party will win the prestigious Best Actor/Actress in a Drama/Comedy category? Consider their body of work and the scene they are nominated for. Tell us about your choice!
  • Who in your party will win the prestigious Best Dressed/Set Design category? Consider the set pieces for their game and who has the most belts. If that's something you may consider.
  • In a completely new category upset, who in your party is most likely to Photobomb on the Red Carpet.

For my Road Trip on the Red Carpet, I'm pretty sure:

Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series will win for best actor in a Drama and/or Comedy because Natey Drake falls to earth and twists his body like a hilarious pro when he misses a ledge. He's been doing it for years now and has been snubbed by the Academy every single time. Perhaps this year will be a pity win.

King Erik from Fantasy Life be most likely to Photobomb on the red carpet if he were tall enough but then again, where there's a will, there's a way... and if you know King Erik, he lets everyone know he should not go ignored. It's good to be King and all that.

and Nach would win the Best Dressed category. I mean, just look at him!

He's ready.
